Dr. Kim Cullen (MUN) is an Assistant Professor in the School of Human Kinetics and Recreation and the Co-Director for the SafetyNet Centre for Occupational Health and Safety Research – a leading community-university alliance for multidisciplinary research, knowledge exchange and OHS education in Atlantic Canada. Kim came to MUN in 2018 after 16 years conducting research at the Institute for Work & Health in Toronto. Her research focuses on the interconnections between work and health, how work affects our physical and mental health – for good or for bad – and also how poor health affects our ability to work. Her strengths include expertise in advancing methods to measure and evaluate change as indicators of recovery, the design of web-based survey instruments, the synthesis of research evidence through systematic literature reviews, and the effective use of innovative knowledge mobilization strategies to increase the relevance, reach, uptake and impact of research for OHS policy and practice decision-making.
